The Voice Season Two Starts Tonight

The Voice Season Two starts tonight at 6.30pm and traditionally with successful talent shows the second season is better then the first.

As professional singers who are generally suspect of reality shows see how the show boosted performers profiles. Prinnie Stevens has said since the end of the show she has been able to make living from her music, as probably has quite a few of them from Season One.

Darren McMullen confirms this is in an interview with Ros Reines in the Sunday Telegraph where he says:

“I prefer The Voice this year,” he says.

“I think it is a better show. The level of talent is brilliant because a lot of good artists watched it last year, saw that it wasn’t just a rubbish reality show where they would be judged on their looks and decided to audition because The Voice has integrity.

“The hardest thing that we have to face this year is that we have artists from a load of different genres, including jazz, Broadway musicals and rock and roll, so judging them will not be easy.”

He also says there is some friction between Delta and Seal, if so I am on Team Delta if this is the case.

Delta has also revealed she has taken some media training in the off season to improve her performance in the show after she faced a barrage of criticism last year.

Ricky Martin replaces Keith Urban in the swivelling chairs.

Also Holly Byrne from The Daily Telegraph reviewed the show and was gushing over it even saying “the nine blind auditions will deliver some of the most incredible singers this country has seen on any stage.”

Hmm maybe Seal has been working some Jedi mind tricks on her….

Also The Voice is going all out on the social media interaction and you can build your own team to coach much like those football competitions online. It looks interesting but could be a bit of a time suck but a prize of a VIP to the final to The Voice in the USA is up for grabs. Go to the official The Voice site to register and also to apply for tickets to the shows.

The Voice Australia on NINE tonight (Sunday) at 6.30pm

Anna, the tinned fruit was just one more inconsistency in this season’s critiquing.

I think Pete and Manu have both done their carreers a big disservice this season because they will be associated with bad or average food.
If they end up associated with A&S in particular, that will be even worse for them.

Karise can sing but it’s not about who can sing in today’s music industry, it’s all about image. She’s no Katy Perry in the looks department and as we all know sex sells. The people in these competition have no idea how the inside of the music industry works, that’s why they always fail. Six months after the hype of the show is long gone, the record company don’t give a shit about who you are anymore.

These shows are a con and should be stopped but if people are stupid enough to try out for them and people are stupid enough to watch them, unfornately they’ll keep going.

Thanks BDD. I appreciate that I won’t be entirely missing out on Manu tonight. Now if you can do a good Sophia for me. :)

“Sadly Pete and Manu have lost a lot of fans this year over their favoritism of the Bratz”

What, have you taken a head count of everybody? Get real.

Actually, I admire Pete and Manu for not falling under the weight of community peer pressure. A&S have cooked some great food, which is why they are still in the competition. What is so hard to understand about that? It is not as if A&S have cooked up disaster after disaster so they have every right to be in this competition as the Caucasian contestants.

I still stand by what the cutting-edge research has to say about the ordeal – most Australians are harbouring racist thoughts dating back to the colonial era and it shows. That is why you will find that most people on social media (including here) tend to be tacitly, if not overtly, racist.

Sadly, nobody is held accountable for their actions, even though most people here would quickly land up in court if they said these things out in the real world. Very fascinating, is it not?

14 Golo i Wesolo { 04.07.13 at 6:49 pm }

Oh, and on the topic at hand, I hope The Voice thrashes MKR tonight in the ratings department.

15 Littlepetal { 04.07.13 at 6:58 pm }

Australians are harbouring racist thought? Try Chinese, Indians and other races.

16 Christina { 04.07.13 at 8:55 pm }

No, it’s not. Also not true.

blar,blar. blar! yawn

# 63 is a racist, homophobic troll. Cutting edge research, my arse, just more lies.

19 A.P { 04.07.13 at 9:52 pm }

Golo @64, you’d better watch The Voice as well just in case any Asian singers are discriminated against even if their voices are crap.

20 Samiiluvbugg { 04.07.13 at 10:01 pm }

The opening of tonight’s show was a real disappointment! Joel n seal sound horrible live, but delta n Ricky really stole the song with their lovely voices :-)
Btw I have to ask, the voice is an Australian show isn’t it?! If so where’s the Australian judges, delta is but the others no…bring on the Aussie actors plz, like guy, Shannon, Tina, johnny ect:-
I can’t believe the girl that forgot the words got in, like wtf?! :-s

21 brain dead dave { 04.07.13 at 10:13 pm }

The first act really put the “irk ” into quirky. Just rubbish. Which means the judges will shoot their loads for it.

Families out of their minds with delusion over their bog ordinary brats and siblings. Walk out of the room, use just your ears to realize how bad these contestants really are without the schmaltzy sets and effects.

Forgetting the words is celebrated .Altijan Juric forgot the words at his first X factor audition .Totally unprofessional but he was let through.

22 Techhater { 04.07.13 at 10:26 pm }

Dave we don’t watch the voice but remember forgetting ur words in an audition leads to 3 things *1* a cave *2* WINNING *3* obscurity

23 Daisy { 04.07.13 at 11:09 pm }

AP @69. Well done 😉

Sammiluv; I was going to boycott it for that reason but I caved. I saw a couple of singers at the end. I thought the guy who sang like Martin Sexton was good.

24 Littlepetal { 04.07.13 at 11:32 pm }

What, so saw the and for Woman’s Day. There is a story about Delta and Seal are in love!!! Don’t know what’s wrong with Delta. Her choice of man is so bad

25 brain dead dave { 04.07.13 at 11:38 pm }

Delta’s lips are Sealed.

I’ll check out all the goss mags tomorrow evening.

26 Anna { 04.08.13 at 8:36 am }

On the cover of one of the trash mags Delta & Deal are in lurve & going for a kiss….. Good thing I saw that on an empty gut

Scott hooked up with Braces… Might be the reason for his relationship ending…

27 Daisy { 04.08.13 at 8:39 am }

Given how Seal likes to go for the lips, it could have been a random shot when Delta was to slow to turn.

If your not quick he’s slip you the tongue just to say Bon Voyage.

Must have no brains.

31 Littlepetal { 04.08.13 at 9:06 am }

It’s funny. Sophia ex boyfriend is also Scot

32 Daisy { 04.08.13 at 9:14 am }

Handy, I’d say Little Petal. She can use the same hankies with the S on the corner.
